's take a quick review of some of the events that made headlines. in june, wisconsin unions were dealt a blow when efforts to recall anti-union governor scott walker failed. ally labors launched an extensive campaign but no match for the deep pockets of walker's donors. in september, chicago's teachers went on strike for the first time in 25 years. while they did get a pay raise they had to make concession like longer school days. and walmart organizers began to strike for holidays. and there was also michigan passing a right to work and making them the 24th state with such laws. the events of this year can leave anyone with mixed feelings and uncertainty about the future of organized labor, but that is looking at the glass half empty and in direct opposition of what labor has stood for in this country, hunkering down and getting the job down. uaw president bob king understands very well that the fight is far from over. >> we are going to continue until people know what this ideological agenda is. it is about suppression of women's rights, labor rights and immigrant rights and it is re

organizations, organized people into unions in a way that we never had before or since. that was the greatest wave of unionization the united states ever seen. in the depths of the depression. think about the difference between then and now. in the depths of the depression millions of americans decided they wanted to join a union and they did so on a scale we had never had before or since. the second big organization was the socialist party's and the third was the american communist party who were coordinated with the cio and the joint membership and so on. very powerful organizations parallel to what you have in europe but after the war everything changed. if i could take a moment to explain why. roosevelt comes to power, the depression is underway three years, he runs on a balanced budget proposal, he gets into office and everyone tells him the economic crisis is worse than anything they have ever seen which is clearly true. they don't know what to do and it is getting worse. something has to be done. this might have been an interesting conversation but there are also people marching in the

of the union, 1860-61. more specifically will talk about however him again rejected any meaningful compromise. the country was gripped by a section of crisis because many southerners feared lincoln and his republican party. it was a north party and proudly so. it did not have a significant seven connection. lincoln was elected without a single lessor although for many of the 15 / states and only four of the border states did he get any popular votes and then nearly a handful. for the first time in the nation's history there will be taking over the executive branch of the national government. the republican party was proudly in northern party, during its brief existence in the mid 1850's damage its rhetoric and assault of the south, and the south major social institution racial slavery. and their determination that is the republicans' determination to well the north into a unit that could win a national election without any southern support, the republicans repeatedly condemned the south as on progressive, undemocratic, even unamerican. this party on the threshold of the presidency. those peop
have restricted union political contributions, that had some union money behind it, and also a lot of organizations like voto latino, like mi familia, civic groups that are looking at engaging voters who are in many cases not regular voters and have been written off as we can't depend on them. and there was real grassroots energy that got them out. i think college students were a big part of the win for prop 30. the fact that the current year's budget was built assuming that 30 was going to pass and that if it didn't, there were going to be trigger cuts that were going to cut into the higher education budget, really motivated a lot of students out. so, brown moves forward with that momentum. >> i really feel like that's kind of the nub of it. there was a huge component of fear involved, and well-based fear involved in the prop 30 campaign. it seemed like it finally got through to people that a tremendous percentage of the state budget is dedicated to k-12 and higher education and you can only cut so far, and we had come to that point without impacting those sections of the budget.
't -- workers union, it's been a long day. we're here to say a few words for the record to the board we received correspondence from sf mta for a service reduction on the day before christmas and the week after, and subsequently that week in between new year's and christmas. and we didn't know if the board or the city knew. and this is something that was attempted a couple of weeks back with the thanksgiving week, in which we disapproved because the level of ridership that happens after or before the holiday actually is increased with increased shopping and commerce in the union square area, also with people still have to go to work. we've been kind of forced into the situation where they want to meet and confer over this for us to agree to the service cut and i don't think it follows the tenants of the traffic first quality to keep the level of service per the 1996 levels. also the budget includes funding to have a regular service schedule before and after the holiday. that was passed by this board and approved and we don't know why mta feels it's their prerogative to cut that service that has
heavily unionized moved to right to work and i wouldn't be surprised if next year we see a couple more states fall. >> interesting contrast in maryland and virginia, neighboring states. you have in virginia, a republican governor cutting taxes, cutting spending. in maryland, you have a liberal democratic governor who's raised tacks all kinds of taxes, income taxes, gas taxes sales taxes, you name it. as a result virginia has a job growth rate that is three times that of maryland. virginia has a lower unemployment rate. so you see that contrast and paul, i think in this election, it actually worked to the president's benefit in some of the swing states like o-ohio and virginia and you had the voters in the states experiencing above average growth thanks to the policies of republican governors. >> paul: kim, then you see the alternatives and let me mention one state where democrat gina amando the state treasurer pushed through a terrific pension reform, probably the best in the country, but if you look at other states where the democratic coalition is dominant, illinois, for example, new
shut down ports all over the east coast have been averted for now. the longshoremen union along the east coast and the gulf of mexico says it will extend its contract for the next 30 days. that extension prevented a possible strike which could have crippled operations at ports that handle nearly half of all cargo in the united states including in our area at the port of baltimore. >>> we have breaking news tonight out of prince george's county where we are following a deadly fire in a townhome in green belt. you're looking live at the scene on laurel hill road. the flames broke out an hour ago. fire investigators say one person is dead in this fire, two others in the hospital, but with nonlife threatening injuries. no word yet on a cause. >>> a news alert from the district, d.c. police want to talk with these two men they are calling persons of interest in the murder of a man on capitol hill. the victim, jason emma, was shot and killed monday while he sat in his car on c street northeast blocks from his home. emma grew up in arlington county and had just recently moved to capito

that was raised earlier today by director brinkman, and that is comparing union square with north beach. i think the difference only there is the businesses there are very largement many of them are chains that have support and finance from their chinese. so, the people in north beach, the businesses in particular, are much more concerned about the possible effects in their neighborhood. and, of course, we're not scheduled for a subway stop. that's another difference. >> thank you, mr. bruno. thank you for your time. next speaker. >>> [speaker not understood] more land, graziano [speaker not understood], [speaker not understood]. >> good afternoon. >>> good afternoon, director rifkin and fellow board members. i'm currently the president of russian hill neighbors, and we represent over 600 households and merchants. and at our recent meeting that ended at 9 o'clock last night, our board of directors with 30 people -- we have a very large board of directors -- unanimously voted to support option 4 at the pagoda theater. it is rare that 30 people agree, especially the 30 people with whom i'm involve
